Iceland – What to do in Reykjavik

What to do in Reykjavik / See and Savour For being a small city, Reykjavik has a lot to offer it’s artsy but also traditional. The city is so small it’s pretty much all “walking distance” and if you’re like me my favorite way to explore a new place is on my feet. To start off you can explore Reykjavik’s downtown center. You’ll want to walk around Laugavegur and Skólavörðustígur both areas have cool shops and tons of street art. Check out Hallgrímskirkja the largest church in

Iceland Road Trip – North Western and Western Regions

Iceland Road Trip Adventures / See and Savour DAY 08, 09, 10 // as we started to explore the North Western side of Iceland – the weather got increasingly worse each day. It was extremely windy, rainy, and cold for most of the day and then for few seconds the sun would shine. Typical Iceland weather! After leaving the Mývatn, we headed towards Akureyri. Akureyri is Iceland’s 2nd largest urban area outside of Reykjavik. It is also known as the capital of the North. Here we

Iceland Road Trip – Mývatn Region

Hverir, Iceland / See and Savour DAY 07 // There is definitely a lot to see in the Mývatn Region. We started the day at Krafla – a large volcanic crater that was formed by a major eruption leading to the collapse of the mouth of the volcano. You can park and take a short hike to the top of the crater. On the drive back to the entrance, be sure not to miss the random shower head. Not quite sure how or when

Iceland Road Trip – Traveling North

Iceland - 12 Day Iceland Road Trip / See and Savour DAY 06 // Much of this day was spent on the road. We made our way from Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon towards the small town of Hofn. It takes about three hours to get to Hofn from the Glacier Lagoon. We stocked up on groceries and went on a search for a place to do laundry. Campsites usually offer a washer and dryer but the one we drove in to only had a washer no dryer. The second campsite

Iceland Road Trip – Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon – Iceland / See and Savour DAY 05 // I fell in love with Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Located on the south eastern part of country – the lagoon formed after the glacier started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. This was one of the places I was most excited about when researching Iceland, and it surely did not disappoint. As we drove towards the lagoon the land was dry and gravelly – yet we saw all these cars parked off to the

Iceland Road Trip – The Northern Lights, Vatnajökull, and Svinafellsjokull

Svinafellsjokull Iceland / See and Savour The best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland is said to be between the months of September to April, even though they actually occur year round it’s best seen when it is really dark and clear. Our time in Iceland was from the end of August to the first week of September, so we weren’t sure if we would be able to see it. The first couple days into our road trip, we heard from the

Iceland Road Trip – Exploring around Vik

Sólheimasandur Plane Crash / See & Savour DAY 04 //After a full day watching waterfalls, we headed towards a little town called Vik. It’s famous for the beautiful black sand beaches and the plane crash site. To be honest, I didn’t have much interest in the plane but Y wanted to check it out. The plane was a US Navy plane that ran out of fuel and crashed at the location. All the crew members survived, and the wreckage was left abandoned which overtime became

Iceland Road Trip – South Iceland Waterfalls

Seljalandsfoss, Iceland / See and Savour DAY 03//Seljalandsfoss was one of my favorite waterfalls in Iceland. Throughout Iceland, you’ll find many spectacular waterfalls, but what I loved most about this particular one is the fact that you could walk behind it. The waterfall is about 200ft high and has a walking path behind it. The strong mist from the fall will get you wet so be prepared to wear a rain jackets and have a handy cloth to wipe down the camera lens. The

We started off at Þingvellir National Park. When we arrived we were in search of a bathroom (the downside of
